  • Amazing dunes and vast beaches with scarcely another visitor in sight. Nice paved and very flat bicycle path that winds along A1A and offers glimpses of the marsh, windswept oaks and sandy dunes...

  • The best nature walk in the area…incredible two miles through the dunes, then a gorgeous trek down the unspoiled beach…

  • Absolutely loved this gem! Went on a weekday right as they opened and had the beach to ourselves til 11. Incredible amounts of beautiful shells! So much to see and do. Didn't get a chance to the trails, I wish we had planned a whole day here instead of just a half day. Make this part of your vacation, you won't be disappointed! $5 per car, you can pay cash or credit through the app.
  • This is a great beach to go to. The sand is soft and clean. The Rangers are very helpful and very nice. The bath houses are very clean and there are places to change as well as go to the bathroom. Dogs are not allowed on the beach. We did get to see some tortoises near one of the bath houses and it was super cute. Hoping to catch a glimpse of sea turtles the next time we go.
